Ok, i have looked around, and found nothing? I am going to say that Michigans Adventure will proboly not get anything new this year, any one else have any guesses or conformatios? I Would say just more of the landscaping is going to happen for next year.

MA is getting tol booths. I'm so excited, I can't wait till next year.

.

There are putting money into the park, but I doubt any rides will be put in.

Also, MA is NOT getting schabinchen. They already have a simular model to it, and it has very low ridership.

It's MiA, not MA, just letting you know.

My guess is that they're saving up for a huge steel B&M, which seems like the only thing the park is missing at this point.

I was curious, What type of train did MiA put in this past season? I am probably the only person who would ask this question.

MA's train that was put in is a retarted loop that in next to ST known as timbertown railway. [even the name is retarted] All there is to see, is a bunch of over grown weeds and small trees. It's short, boring and pointless. Unless CF reroutes it, I'll continue to believe it's the worst investment in CF history.

I used to ride the train that was there years ago, but they took that out, and it's station was where zach's zoomer is now, and it looped around the antique cars that not longer exist, under the bridge near the entrance that no longer exists. ext. MA has changed quite a bit. I'm hoping CF will shape it into a better park. There are some things that need to be dealt with before they make any major ride investment.

Hmmmm...yes those toll booths are worth the excitement. ;)

The train is indeed a CP Huntington Chance train. The word is the route will expand. A larger train is sitting in the lot over at the maintenance building. Landscaping and lighting will be occuring. Though the park has not lengthened the time the park will be open, one could logically assume that they will begin to prepare the lighting for the future. A flat is a possibility and the thought of the large steel coaster could be reality in 2004. Of course when they announce next years improvements in the coming weeks, this lil post will be long forgotten. :)

so maybe we will get a new coaster, but not world class coaster? is that what u are hinting at?

Why does a coaster have to be 'world class' to be a coaster? Why not a coaster that will excite, amuse and get paid off quickly enough for the next great thing?

Sure, there may have been a Morgan coaster planned some time back--but i can't help thinking that a $3 million Invertigo should be the next coaster. 600pph would suit a park with 400K annual attendance just fine, it would provide enough oomph for the thrillseekers, boost the attendance figures and make it even easier to justify a bigger coaster.

Am I being selfish? Am I really suggesting this because I'd love to ride one on the way home from visitng the folks? Sure I am. So?

hey matt...define "world class coaster" by your standards. If you say that it would be a really big hunk of steel that goes really fast and travels a great distance, then yeah, we'll be getting that. But if it's supposed to be larger than that and shatter all land speed records, then I must sadly say no, we won't be getting that one. We'll have to defer those to the home park....it's only fair, they foot the bill. Don't fret, we will get ours in due time.

A larger train? Can we see it? Does ANYONE have pics of it? I hate off-season, the nearest park is an hour and a half away.

They're announcing in the next few weeks. They better do it before New Years. We can only keep our fingers crossed.

Yeah, if you didn't notice near the end of the season, MiA was already construction parking booths. I'll see if I can dig up some pics of mine of it. I probably arleady cut them up. If I do find 'em, I'll post back here.

The extreme posibility of a flat is in mind for next season, with our "2002 Promised" hyper-coaster for 2004. ;) Also, you might think about another train station if we ARE getting a larger train, probably at the other end of the new Wildcat midway. That midway may or may not appear this year.

When can we start the off-season reports?

Can you get me more information on this, I'm very interested in park history. For example, the year it was put in, the year they took it out, layout, etc. thanks

Scwabichen should have been transfered to MiA from CP.Along with the Boomerang from KBF. Knott's should replape boom w/ am ArrowBATis or something. Nothing wrong with a few hand me downs until MiA can afford something new and incredible. If anything I'd rather have a few more awsome woodies instead of one Steel.

Haw haw...since when?

Jazzland's often-anounced, never-delivered SLC would have cost $6.5 million ($4.5 for the ride, $2 million installation) if they weren't building on a swamp. The Deja Vus were about $3.5 mill per the Chicago Tribune...though I bet they wish they had doubled the price.

I bet you're thinking of an Intamin Impulse...like the $8.5 million beauty goin' up in my in-law's neighborhood.

Why would they send the "S" to MiA from CP? They already have Trabant which is exactly the same ride without the busty female. Also why would they send Boomerang from KBF? That is one of the more popular rides there.

A Trabant isn't really a Schwabinchen. Well, maybe now that it doesn't do the backwards thing anymore...

BTW -- I have heard that Vekoma's inverteds are approaching the price of B&M's smaller models. For whatever reason.
